Up early to spen 3 hours rambling around the entire jungle clad site. Amazing views rewarded up for a steep climb to the top section of temple IV. A few phone cslls homr via skype in the onlh place at Tikal with phone reception.
Everything at the ruind had inflated prices, including the 32km bus to El Remate at $8 per person (with the bikrs).
Realising that our days on holiday were numbered, we opted to only cycle a short distance in Guatemala before catching another micro bus to the border town of Melchor.
The officials tried unsuccessfully to scam $3 each for an exit tax but all else was smooth and easy.
It was gone 5:30pm and still intensely hot and sticky. Our guide book suggested the 12km distant San Ignacio as a reasonable halt but dusk was already upon us and the hills were ever present!
Pitched the tent in total darkness at the empty Inglewood campsite on the outskirts of town.
